It's been a week since Super Bowl LI, and it's time to start a new NFL football thread.

Here are this weekend's top stories:

Destination Romo: All the places Tony could go

Is buzz surrounding Bears and Jimmy Garoppolo real?

Raiders President Marc Badain says financing for Las Vegas stadium won't be an issue

Best,

Geoff

Well, regardless where the Raiders end up playing football in the future, they have locked up HC Jack Del Rio with a new four (4) year contract. cool

ProfD- should the Skins sign Kirk Cousins to a multi year deal? It's an interesting situation there.

Geoff, Garoppolo is another interesting story. Brady hasn't shown a breakdown in skills, so the window is closing on this guy, fast. But how good is he? How much will a team risk? Houston paid big bucks for Osweiler, so teams will or should be hesitant. I'd take the gamble, more than I would on Romo.

Yes I do. thu

If Philip Rivers became available I might feel differently. laugh

Seriously, the QB market is not that great.

While Cousins makes mistakes at the worst time, IMO, poor coaching decisions have put him in some of those situations.

Cousins has proven to be a solid QB. I believe he'll be even better with a sense of job security and more experience under his belt.

I'll give my 2 cents to the question posed to Geoff...

I think teams should learn from that Osweiler deal. It does not make sense to throw a bag of gold at an unproven backup QB.

A few years ago, Seattle picked up Flynn for less money than Brock got but Flynn was beat out in training camp by their current all-Pro, SB champion, starting QB.

Neither Matt Cassel nor Ryan Mallett has set the NFL on fire after leaving New England. Garrapolo might be good but we haven't seen enough of him yet.

Unless a team is desperate at QB and/or has a tremendous offensive line, it doesn't make sense to throw money at Romo either. I believe he only has 1 or 2 years of football left in his tank. cool

Agreed. Cousins is very good, not great, but right now there isn't a better option. What should they do, trade him for a few draft picks and start Colt McCoy? I think not.

ProfD made a very strong case against overspending on a backup quarterback. CEB seems to have a lot of faith in Garoppolo. I'll be interested in his opinion as well.

As for me, I haven't seen enough yet to say whether Garoppolo's the answer; but I've seen enough of Jay Cutler—both on the Broncos and Bears—to understand why the Bears might think he's a problem that needs solving. I agree that Garoppolo's probably a better gamble than Romo at this point. Romo's probably a better fit for a team that has peaked and only needs an experienced, high-calibre quarterback to take them the rest of the way—like Peyton Manning did with the Broncos.

It'll be fun to watch it all play out.

Best,

Geoff

What do these guys all have in common? They were all acquired by the Houston Texans to be the starter after being a backup QB somewhere else. facepalm

Bless their hearts, they are trying to find a diamond in the rough, but jeez, this has gotten the Texans nowhere for a while now. They can only hope the offensive coaching changes they've made will work for Brock, but I'm not holding my breath.

I believe the Skins used their franchise tag on Cousins last season. So, I think they have to make a deal or let him walk. I'm not sure they're in a position to get anything in trade.

If the Skins do not keep Cousins, they end up on this type of QB carousel. The diamond in the rough is a college kid. That's a 2-3 year development program.

IMO, McCoy is s decent backup QB but not a long-term solution. The Skins have to keep Cousins or bring in a veteran like Cutler, Romo or Kaepernick. sick laugh cool

He had better be - otherwise they have even less at QB than they did. And no, I don't want Smokin' Jay Cutler.

Rats:

T.J. Lang signs three-year deal with Lions

Oh well, I'm happy for Lang to get to return to his home state of Michigan to play for the team he probably rooted for as a child. I hope the Packers can find suitable linemen. Lang is the second starter they've lost during this offseason. (Center JC Tretter was the first.)

This was a good sign. Bennett was good on the Giants, not utilized well on the Bears, and had some bright moments on the Pats. I think Rodgers will like having this big target in the end zone.

Sad but true. Ware reportedly turned down $9 million to retire.

I hope you're right about Bennett, antimatter.

In the meantime, the Packers have some big holes to fill:

Eddie Lacy is Seahawks' latest gamble to replace Marshawn Lynch

Julius Peppers: Set to rejoin Carolina

Well, the Skins fire the GM and lose Garcon and D-Jax to free agency. They must be counting on the young WRs (Crowder, Grant and Doctson) and addition of Pryor to help Cousins. cool

Raiders have added Cordarelle Patterson and Jared Cook. I can live with that. Wouldn't mind seeing another RB, either in the draft or via free agency.

Vikings got Latavuis Murray. I'm okay with that, too...

Eagles with Alshon Jeffery on one side and Torrey Smith on the other. Also interesting. Sure, Smith is a one trick pony (the long ball), but it's a gooooood trick.

Speaking of the Raiders...

Owners vote 31-1 to OK Raiders move; Dolphins vote against

The Raiders will still play in Oakland in 2017, and possibly longer.

I'm not surprised, but I am disappointed. I doubt it's a good idea to plant a team into the capitol of organized gambling.

Best,

Geoff

No more leaping over the line of scrimmage to block extra point attempts or field goal attempts, for one thing.

Makes sense. Peterson and Brees will make a great backfield, and both are running out of time. I'm not surprised that no team was willing to pay AP the money Minnesota would have owed, but I am surprised at how little he's going to make now.

I'm just glad the Packers won't have to face him at least twice a year for the next two years.

Best,

Geoff

They helped the Packers too by giving them an extra fourth round pick simply to move back four spots (picking 33 instead of 29).

A QB frenzy. It will be interesting to see who got it right. Houston played so well against the Pats last year in the playoffs, defensively anyway, maybe Watson pushes them over the edge? Kansas City is a now team, I can't help but feel Alex Smith is a good goat- insert Mahommes.

Chicago is bewildering if what I heard was true, that John Fox wasn't aware of the potential trade up until 2 hours before the draft. That would never happen in say oh NE. But again just a rumor.

well, even Business Insider has something to say about it

John Fox reportedly learned about the Bears' plan to trade up for Mitchell Trubisky

The Packers focused on much-needed alliteration in the second round, picking Kevin King (CB, Washington) and Josh Jones (S, NC State).

Oh, and they'll probably help improve Green Bay's pass defense as well.

Best,

Geoff

Really, picks from space, animals? It's nuts. I love football, but too long to be blinded at the insane commercialism that has infected every aspect of the game. Yes, the draft has a "winning the lottery" effect for a bunch of young men and their families; good for them. But geez does the NFL have to capitalize it like this? It's bittersweet. I enjoy it and loathe it. facepalm

This story broke a couple of days ago. Jay Cutler is following Tony Romo into the broadcast booth:

Ex-Bears QB Jay Cutler has deal to do TV for Fox

As Fox covers the NFC, there's a real likelihood that Cutler will be in the booth for Bears games and former NFC North rivals.

Best,

Geoff

Ok, so now players can do touchdown group celebrations and use the football as a prop.

I have many reactions to this: facepalm idk cop w00t crazy

Unfortunately endorsements will feed it. Many will practice their celebrations more than plays the team runs. I hope it's fun, but I see train wrecks- especially when my Giants have OBJ and Brandon Marshall. Maybe TO can get a celebration choreography gig. It will be entertaining.

Houston paid big bucks for Osweiler, so teams will or should be hesitant. I'd take the gamble, more than I would on Romo.


I think the Pats would be nuts to let Garoppolo go. Brady is a remarkable physical specimen for sure, but dude is getting ready to be 40, and a lot of times guys that cruise along great in their later years suffer a drastically fast erosion of skills at some point. You know at his age that's going to come sooner than later, Father Time being undefeated and all. Besides, Chicago is a place where quarterbacks go to die.....

The first time I watched Any Given Sunday it struck me as kind of a comic book parody of the NFL. Today's game looks like that movie more every year to me.....

The Packers are lucky to be down 0-3 at the half to the Seahawks. Green Bay's offense has been outplayed by Seattle's defense so far; but luckily, the Packers' defense rose to the challenge, shutting down the Seahawks' offense for all but the last 20 seconds of the half.

Here's hoping the Pack comes back in the second half.

Best,

Geoff

Green Bay played well enough in the second half that I think they probably would have won the game without the benefit of the bad calls that went against Seattle, but there's no way to know. Too bad the officiating was so bad.

The Seahawks defense is one of the best in the league. They've got a great season ahead.

My condolences to Seattle fans on today's officiating and loss.

Best,

Geoff

I just finished watching my recording of the Rams/Colts game. Wow! Two pick sixes and a safety from the defense and the best offensive performance of the Goff era make me think this team could end the season in second place. LA's defense looked VERY good—not as good as the Seahawks defense—but top ten at least.

Granted, they faced a Luckless, somewhat decimated Indianapolis squad; but last year's Rams would have struggled to win this game. This year's Rams showed serious potential in their 46-9 win.

And they start the season alone in first place!

Best,

Geoff

The Yankees scored 16 points today.

No, I don't have the wrong thread. As ESPN pointed out, that's one more point than the Jets (12) and Giants (3) combined for today. It's not often when a city's baseball team outscores both of its NFL teams.

Jaguars spanked Texans 29 to 7, but it really wasn't that close.
Jags had 10, yes that's right 10 sacks on two different Texan quarterbacks. If the pocket had collapsed any faster, I think it might have started nuclear fission. Even if they get Duane Brown back on the offensive line, he is not going to make THAT much difference.

Hopefully some of it is just Hurricane hangover, injuries, and the fact it looks like Jacksonville may be pretty darn good this year.

I think most of it was due to the hurricane. Remember the Saints finished 3-13 the year of Katrina, being forced to play all of their home games away from their home stadium. It was their worst record since 1999. The following year, they returned to the Superdome, went 10-6, and played in the NFC Championship game for the first time in franchise history.

Best,

Yeah. Giants defensively are in the mix, but the O-line is lacking. The guy with the cool hair can only do so much when he returns.

I thought the Seattle-Green Bay game was pretty special for week 1. The NFC is going to be a tough fight.



Ok, the AFC won't be a pushover either - looking forward to seeing Raiders/Chiefs.. and oh my will Belichick be running the Pats ragged in practices this week.

The Packers travel to Atlanta to face the Falcons next week in a replay of last season's NFC Championship game. On the heels of their contest against the Seahawks, that's tough indeed!

Careful - they had their way with AZ yesterday.

Unless Brandon Marshall or Sterling Shepard step up, I agree - ODB will almost certainly be headed for a decent amount of double coverage regardless.

What do you guys view as the biggest surprise of week one, that the Patriots lost their home opener, that the Rams are in sole possession of first place, or that the Bills are in sole possession of first place?

Best,

Geoff

Deshaun Watson's first start is a success. His 49-yard touchdown run in the 2nd quarter tonight was the longest ever by a quarterback in his first NFL start. Happy birthday, Deshaun!

In the meantime, the Bengals have yet to score their first touchdown of the season.

Best,

Geoff

Well, I'm still watching; but that last game was just painful to watch. The Falcons not only beat the Packers, they beat them up. Five starters injured, including Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. Here's hoping Green Bay can remedy that by the end of the season, or they won't get past the NFC Championship Game again (presuming they're lucky enough to get that far).

But today's win by the Broncos was a thing of beauty! They dominated on both sides of the ball against a strong Cowboys team. Who would have thought Trevor Siemian could look better than Dak Prescott?

As for the Rams, despite today's loss, I still think they're coming along nicely. They were tied at the 2-minute warning; and if Los Angeles hadn't committed so many penalties, they might have been ahead at that point. Goff was on target with most of his passing, but he's still telegraphing his moves too often. Nonetheless, the Rams are on the right track and a far cry better than last year. Congrats to ProfD on Washington's win.

Best,

Geoff

Marshawn looks like he's having the time of his life playing for his home team. I'm glad he got the chance. cool

I realize the Giants started 0-2 in 2007 and still managed to beat the undefeated Patriots in the Super Bowl, but I'm not sure this edition has it in them. Then again, maybe the Lions are that good. I guess we'll see how they handle themselves against the Falcons next week...

Best,

Geoff

Too bad for the Packers. Congrats on the Broncos win especially beating an enemy team. grin

I am grateful for the SKins' win. But, I hope they commit to running the football. It sets up everything else and controls the clock.

The defense looks a little better than last year. They still allow teams to march downfield and score. I do not subscribe to the bend but don't break mentality either. We should be more aggressive.

Otherwise, I'm just glad football season is back. I'm having a blast watching the games and playing FF and Pick 'Em. cool
